Definition of a paragraphA paragraph is a group of logically related sentences ex-pressing one main idea. A paragraph is complete in itself and mayalso be a subdivision or part of something which is larger, suchas a composition, an article, or a chapter
in.a
book.
That is to
say, a group of related sentences composes a paragraph;
a group
of related paragraphs makes
a composition; a group of composi-tions,in turn, can
ke
the chapters that make a book.

Organization of a paragraphIn fact, most paragraphs consist of a topic sentence,which states the main idea or indicates what will be discussed in
a
 
w-agraph,
and the discussion that contains all supportingdetails used to explain or prove the main idea in the topic sen-tence. A paragraph may have a conclusion; which may
be
a sentencethat shows the completeness of a paragraph. However, it is notnecessary to have a conclusion in every paragraph, especially, if
it is short. Study the paragraph below.
I
A good student should have at least two learning 
requirements.

First, he should 
be
diligent in his
studies.

he is studying.

Diligence is regarded as one of the
keys to success.

In addition to diligence,
a
go&
student should have good reading habits, which imply his greed for knowledge.

Instead of wasting histime doing other things, a
gocd
student spends his
time in reading.

Good
reading habits will help him
broaden his knowledge beyond the

taken and keep himself abreast of the current situa-tions.
e
It is true that no student reaches the peakof his profession without these two learning require-
ments.
In the
above
paragraph, the first sentence is the topicsentence. Sentences

is
the conclusion sentence.
Traditionally, the first line of a paragraph is usually
indented.
This indentation of a paragraph indicates where the
paragraph begins. In a composition that contains many paragraphs,
there will be several indentations to make it easy for the reader
to see where each new paragraph or idea in the composition begins.
One paragraph, however,
contains
only one indentation becausethere is only one beginning point. Remember that you must capi-talize the first word in each sentence and end each sentence witha punctuation mark, most often a period
